The German submarine U-864 sunk off the coast of Norway during World War II. The submarine was carrying about 67 metric ton of mercury.The wreck of U-864 was rediscovered in 2003, resting on the seabed at a depth of 150 metres.

To prevent any further mercury contamination into the environment the Norwegian coastal administration (NCA) is taking as a first step to install a counter fill on the seabed to stabilize the broken parts of the submarine. Stringent requirements have been set for environmental monitoring of the work.

Develogic is part of the project team. For this projects develogic developed 9 underwater measuring platforms with different sets of sensors and a highly sophisticated underwater communication system. This includes an inductive system which integrates all underwater platforms with sensors and as an additional communication line: an acoustic backup. All incoming data are accessible via a satellite link by a large spar buoy, which was especially designed by develogic for this project.
